zA Review 

Southwestern University was opened on October 6, 1873 in a plain stone building with a 
regent, two professors and thirty-three students. In June 1923, she celebrated her Golden 
Jubilee and stepped into her second half century of progress and development. This turn into 
her second half century of history was made significant by the launching of the Greater South- 
western Movement. 

This movement had its origin in the Ex-Students' Association of the University and was 
launched under the joint auspices of that association and the University's Board of Trustees. 
Its objective was the securing of #500,000 to be used in erecting the Cody Memorial Library, 
a Gymnasium, and the increasing of the University's endowment. Rev. Glenn Flinn, an alum- 
nus of the University was called to promote the movement as its Executive Secretary, and 
in June 1024 it was formally inaugurated. After the destruction of the Woman's Building 
by fire in January 1925 the objective of the movement was enlarged to embrace a new dormi- 
tory. Its progress has been such as to gratify and encourage the friends of Southwestern. 
A total of more than $340,000 has been subscribed to the movement to date and new subscrip- 
tions and monev are being received every day. 


The gratifying success of the Greater Southwestern Movement has been due in a large 
way to a group of friends who have manifested their interest in the old school by subscriptions 
ranging in amounts from two to fifty thousand dollars. The pictures of most of these friends 
appear in this connection. Because of modesty and other reasons the pictures of the rest could 
not be secured. Among those whose pictures do not appear are some whose names cannot be 
left out. 

There is first of all, Mr. J. M. West, lumberman of Houston. What a debt does Southwestern 
owe to him! It was he who headed the special group of Houston men who laid on Southwestern 's 
altars more than one hundred thousand dollars. It was he who was chosen by the Board of 
Trustees of which he is a member to be chairman of the new dormitory's building committee. 
These and other striking evidences of his interest in Southwestern bring her under eternal ob- 
ligation to him. 

And there is Mr. W. L. Clayton, international cotton factor, of Houston, a man of large 
mould and large gifts to many worthy causes. Southwestern is deeply grateful and exceedingly 
glad to be on the list of those institutions which he counts worth while. 

Then there is Judge R. E. Brooks, prominent capitalist of Houston. Judge Brooks is a 
graduate of Southwestern and she has rejoiced in his achievements both at the bar and in the 
world of business. That he should be mindful of the needs of his Alma Mater awakens sincere 

And still again among her special friends must be written the name of Mr. W. P. Ferguson, 
a leading oil man, of Wichita Falls. Mr. Ferguson's handsome gift to the new dormitory fund 
was sent to the University through his pastor, Dr. W. J. Johnson, and came at a time as to be 
most encouraging. Mr. Ferguson has also been a contributor to Southern Methodist University 
and he and his sons have built a large modern dormitory for Simmons College in memory of 
Mrs. Ferguson, deceased. Southwestern rightly is boastful of his friendship. 

And the list cannot be completed without mentioning the names of Mr. W. W. Fondren 
and D'\ John H. Foster of Houston and Mrs. C. C. Cody of Georgetown. The Methodist 
schools of Texas have no finer or more liberal friend than Mr. Fondren. He is a prominent oil 
man of Houston and among his other benefactions has been the establishment of "The Fondren 
Lectures on Missions" at Southern Methodist University. Southwestern University is glad that 
he docs not forget her. Dr. Foster is one of the outstanding physicians of Houston and South 
Texas and is an alumnus of Southwestern. His gifts to her have been numerous through the 
years. Mrs. Cody is the widow of the Grand Old Man of Southwestern, Dr. C. C. Cody, and 
the deep interest in the school which was in the heart of Dr. Cody is being perpetuated in Mrs. 
Cody and her sons. 

And this list of friends could be greatly enlarged to include many who have given as much 
as $1000 and scores who have given as much as #500, and hundreds who have made smaller 
gifts, all friends that Southwestern appreciates and whose names she would like to inscribe 
on these pages, but for lack of space. 

^So^es^ -T^lll^^S 


Mr. Jesse H. Jones, LL.D. 
Banker, Builder, Financier — Houston 

About eighteen years ago, Southwestern University 
had her first introduction to Mr. Jones. She was in 
the midst of a campaign at that time for a Theological 
Endowment Fund, and her introduction to Mr. Jones 
came in the form of a telegram, announcing a personal 
gift of $25,000.00 to this fund. In 1925, before the 
smoke of her burned Annex had scarcely blown away 
another telegram came from Mr. Jones, then in New 
York, bearing a message of sympathy and a cheering 
promise of aid in rebuilding. This promise later ma- 
terialized in a large gift. 

Mr. Jones is one of the dominant constructive forces 
of his home city and state, and has been drafted a 
number of times for nationwide service in connection 
with both political and philanthropic movements. In 
appreciation of his attainments and the service he has 
rendered both city and state, Southwestern University, 
in 1025, was pleased to confer on him the LL.D. degree. 

Mr J. W. Reynolds 

Lumberman — Houston 
In three most effective ways Mr. Reynolds has given 
evidence of his love of and confidence in Southwestern 
University. He has been a patron, a large giver, and for 
years a frequent visitor to its campus. In fact, no man in 
Texas, outside of Georgetown, is so well known or so greatly 
loved by the Southwestern student body as he is. In addi- 
tion to his magnificent gift toward the erection of its dor- 
mitory he has proved himself a friend to man)' a worth}' 
and needy student, whom he has enabled to stay in school. 
The friendship of such men as Mr. Reynolds gives South- 
western a real sense of security and optimism. 

Mr. John H. Kirby 
Lumberman — Houston 
Texas has no bigger or better known business figure 
than Mr. Kirby. In the lumber industry he is an out- 
standing national figure. Southwestern University has 
been a recipient of his generosity upon a number of 
occasions, and when the matter of erecting a much 
needed library building as a memorial to his old 
teacher, Dr. C. C. Cody, was presented to him, he 
made the large contribution that insures its success. 
While a student in Southwestern University, Mr. 
Kirby developed a warm regard for Dr. Cody that 
has never abated. He is a man of most generous spirit, 
as many a worthwhile enterprise can attest.

Mr. VV. A. McCord 

Banker — Bastrop 

About the time the Greater Southwestern movement 
was getting under good headway news came to the 
University that Mr. W. A. McCord of Bastrop had 
decided to make Southwestern University a gift in 
memory of his deceased wife, and wanted some official 
of the University to visit him. The visit was made and 
the second large gift of the Greater Southwestern 
movement was added to its records, coming from Mr. 
McCord upon his own initiative and in conformity 
with the wish of his wife, Sallie Eva Powell McCord. 
who was during her lifetime an ardent friend of South- 

Mr. McCord stands high in the business circles of 
central and southwest Texas and has for years been a 
large supporter of the various interests of his church. 
He is a member of Southwestern's board of trustees, 
and it delights the University to number him among 
its friends and staunch supporters. 

Mr. E. L. Craik 

Building and Investments — Houston 
Mr. Crain was a student in Southwestern University 
some years ago and since leaving her halls, has always 
manifested a keen interest in her progress. He is one 
of the leading younger business men of Houston, being 
president of the Crain Ready-cut House Company and 
of the Houston Investment Co., and a director in a 
number of Houston's other business organizations. He 
was chairman of the Greater Southwestern Campaign 
in Houston and to him is due large credit for its suc- 
cess. During that campaign he gave much of his val- 
uable time to its direction and in addition made a 
most substantia! contribution to the University. He is 
a member of the First Methodist Church of Houston. 




Mr. J. M. Rockwell 
Lumberman — Houston 
Mr. Rockwell is another one of those big business 
men who have shown a real appreciation of South- 
western. It was the school selected for the education of 
his own boys, and he has on a number of occasions 
shown in a most material fashion his desire to help 
Southwestern pass her privileges on to the sons of 
other Texas homes. A check from the Rockwell broth- 
ers was the first out of town check to be received by 
the University after its fire, and Mr. Rockwell has 
since added substantially to that initial gift. He is 
sharing the privilege of building Southwestern's new 
dormitory, and the old school appreciates it. 

%e Sou'wester ~J9'2b 


Judge W. L. Dean, LL.I). 

Lawyer — Huntsville 
Judge Dean is President of Southwestern 's Board of 
Trustees, and in this capacity is rendering the Univer- 
sity valuable service. He is one of the school's most 
honored graduates, being recognized not only as a 
strong lawyer, but as one of the most constructive 
political factors of the State. Judge Dean is a layman 
that Texas Methodism has come to know and honor in 
a large way, both for his character and for his active 
interest in all her movements. As a token of its appre- 
ciation of him and his distinguished service to both 
Church and State, Southwestern University at its 
Golden Jubilee bestowed on him the honor of an LL.D. 

4r ^ 



Mr. J. T, Sneed, Jr. 
Cattleman — . 1 martllo 
Mr. Sneed is one of Southwestern 's ex-students that 
has achieved large success in the business world. He 
has become one of the outstanding cattlemen of the 
state. He has frequently made gifts to his old college 
and in connection with the Greater Southwestern 
Movement has established the J. T. Sneed Endow- 
ment Scholarship. Mr. Sneed 's father before him was 
for many years a strong friend of Southwestern, and 
it is with sincere gratification that she has been able 
for some years now to list the name of the son 
among the friends that she counts upon. 

Mr. W. E. Orgain 

Lawyer — Beaumont 
In the earlier days of Southwestern 's history, she 
had no stronger or more deeply appreciated friend 
than Mr. D. D. Orgain of Bastrop. He was for many 
years a member of the Board of Trustees, a patron of 
the school, and a liberal contributor to her needs. It 
was a most fitting thing that his valued service to 
Southwestern should be perpetuated in the person of 
his son, W E. Orgain, of Beaumont, who for a number 
of years has also been one of the University's most 
valued Trustees. No better evidence of the son's gen- 
uine interest in the old school could be had than he 
has given through his gifts and his activity in her 
behalf. Beaumont has no stronger member of its bar 
than Mr. Orgain. 

^75o^ej^7^ 926^^^ ^^^ 


Mrs. William Wiess 
In the halls of Southwestern University is a marble 
slab containing the names of both Mr. and Mrs. 
William Wiess, of Beaumont, Texas, as members of 
the Harrison $100,000 Club. Mrs. Wiess has, for many 
years shown an appreciation of the type of educational 
opportunities offered by Southwestern, and in this 
appreciation she was joined by her husband during 
his lifetime. She is deeply devoted to her church and 
its institutions, and her ears are ever open to their 
appeals. The story of Southwestern 's great fire loss 
was heard by her with keen sympathy, as was evi- 
denced by a generous gift toward the rebuilding of its 
destroyed dormitory. She now lives in Houston, and 
is a member of St. Paul's Church. 

Mrs. John R. Nelson 
Z) ( ;//<;.s- 

Among the pastors that have served Southwestern 
and the First Methodist Church of Georgetown, none 
have left a more enduring impression than Rev. John 
R. Nelson, D. D. During later years he served the 
University most successfully in a campaign for funds, 
with which to establish a medical department in 

Sharing in his love for Southwestern and ever help- 
ful in all his labors was his devoted wife, who after 
his death decided to perpetuate his ministry to the 
Methodist youth of Texas by establishing a scholar- 
ship at Southwestern in his memory. Mrs. Nelson 
now lives in Dallas. 

Mrs. J. J. Perkins 
Wichita Falls 
Mrs. Perkins is one of Southwestern 's daughters to 
whom she is accustomed to point with unusual pleas- 
ure and gratification. While a student in Southwestern 
University she made a most enviable record and since 
leaving her halls, she has ever been mindful of the 
"Old Mother's" needs. She and her fine husband 
have proved themselves to be great friends of Chris- 
tian education in Texas. A few years ago, the Lois 
Perkins and J. J. Perkins Loan Funds were established 
at Southwestern by Mr. and Mrs. Perkins, and when 
the disastrous fire of 1025 came, she was among the 
first to promise substantial aid. She is also sharing in 
the service of erecting the Cody Memorial Library. 
Such friendship the University does not easily forgel.

The \ T earbook of the Students ' Association 

We have, in the production of the Sou'wester '26, striven to give to the student 
body not only an inner story of the University as it appears to us day by day through- 
out the year, but also a book of which the student body might be proud. The general 
plan of the book has been changed in several respects, and there is, as a natural con- 
sequence, a good deal of interest on our part, as to just what the reaction of the student 
body will be to the new plans. 

We have taken as a general motif, a theme as old as Christianity, and the whole 
book is laid around scenes taken from vivid descriptions appearing in the Bible. With 
this in mind, and with the institution of an entirely new system of color work, we have 
deemed it necessary and advisable, to carry a complete simplicity through certain 
sections of the book. 

To the faculty committee on publications, with special acknowledgment to the 
chairman, Mr. Entriken, we wish to express our thanks for their timely advice and 
assistance. To Miss Neas, to Dr. Tinsley, and to all others who have in any way assisted 
in the rather large undertaking, we wish to express our appreciation. 

Having done our best, we offer for your inspection, the SOU'WESTER '26.

The Weekly Publication of the Student Body 

The weekly publication of the Southwestern Student Body appears on the campus 
each Tuesday, not exactly a newspaper, for no weekly can he that, but in every possible 
manner a mirror of the school. 

Perhaps this mirror has not always carried a true reflection of the events and stu- 
dent opinion of Southwestern, but the staff" has earnestly endeavored to follow the 
highest standards of journalism with regard to policies. 

The staff owes many thanks to "Charley," the anonymous character who "sees 
all, knows all," and to the class in Journalism whose cooperation and work have been 
of great aid. 

Never before have the students and faculty been so generous in their support as 
they have this year, and the staff is truly grateful for it. 

Although handicapped by a financial depression, the business men of Georgetown 
have stood by the Megaphone, and this is greatly appreciated. 

The staff hopes it has been able to contribute its part toward the realization of a 
"Greater Southwestern."

Southwestern -J&agazine 

The policy of the Southwestern Magazine for tq:i6 has been simple, brief, and def- 
inite: to be the most representative literary organ of the campus, and to welcome any 
genuine expressions from all departments of the University which are constructive and 
creative in quality. We have not tried to make the Southwestern Magazine a mere 
collection of essays, though literary merit was always considered. We have not used 
it as a boost for any sprouting young genuis, or yet to give publicity to our own pet 
theories. We have striven earnestly to make each issue individualistic in content, 
cover design and general tone. W T e did not attempt to put out a magazine comparable 
with the Atlantic Monthlv, nor did we attempt to imitate any magazine in publication. 
But we have tried to make it the Southwestern Magazine. 

To say that we have succeeded in all our dreams and ideals would be neither truthful 
nor becoming on the part of the Editors. But we can safely say, that if the students 
of the University respond to and cooperate with the Editors of the future as they have 
done this year, the Southwestern Magazine may become the natural channel of student 
expression, and a powerful factor in the formation of student ideals.

When student self-government was ushered into Southwestern by popular vote, 
certain governing bodies were established to enforce the policies and rules of the Self- 
Government Association. These governing bodies do not have as their purpose or am- 
bition "perfection in police force duties," but rather to instill into the minds of the 
students that thev are members of a group, hence the importance of respecting the 
rights of others, and obeying the rules that are put on for the benefit of all concerned. 

One of these governing bodies is the Woman's Building Honor Council. This council 
is composed of twelve girls elected from the three upper classes, and charged with the 
duty of judging the cases of misconduct of girls living within the Woman's Building.

zAlamo J^iterary Society 

Motto: Let man learn illustrious virtue by Association. 
Society Colors: Black and White. 

The Alamo Literary Society was founded in 1845 under a name different from its 
present name, but under similar leadership and constitutional government. In 1873, 
the society was transferred to Southwestern University as the University's first literary 
society. The Society was originally composed of men only but in recent years the men 
have seen it necessary, since women have the same rights as men, to let them become 
members. The true spirit of the original group of men that lost their lives in the Texas 
Alamo, has been transferred to the members of the present society and these present 
"Alamos" are ever loyal. 

Interest and good work is expressed in the regular meetings of the society, socials, 
debates, and athletic contests. And it is this year, especially, that the interest and en- 
thusiasm have increased. This year the society has developed nine of the sixteen inter- 
collegiate debaters. This year we have won victories in football and basketball over our 
opponents, the San Jacs. The society has increased in membership from fifty to one 
hundred and thirty, and the Hall has been entirely remodelled. 

A good many of the leaders in student activities are members of this society. If 
there is ever a group of students that are going to work for a bigger and better South- 
western, it is this group; they stand for the bigger and better things of life, and present 
them in an interesting way.

San Jacinto 

The San Jacinto Literary Society of Southwestern University 
has completed one of the most successful years of its history. 
For fifty-one years loyal San Jacs have kept up the traditions 
and customs of the Society, creating new customs and making 
history as significant and inspiring as in the first thrilling days 
of her existence. The standard of membership has never been 
lowered, the spirit of fellowship has never waned, the thirst for 
knowledge anti the appreciation of culture is ever keen and en- 

Improvements have been made on the hall, and a beautiful 
new piano lends its mellow tones to our morning programs. San 
Jacinto knows how to hold fast to valuable ideals of the past, 
and to keep up with the best thought of the day.

Southzvestern Science Society 

Several years ago, students of the Chemistry department of Southwestern conceived 
the idea of an organization for the advancement of interest in and study of the various 
branches of Chemistry. Under the leadership of Dr. J. C. Godbey, the Chemical Society 
was organized. 

Last vear, the organization deemed it wise to widen its scope to include all of the 
pure sciences. A complete reorganization took place, the constitution and by-laws were 
so changed as to admit to membership students who have completed the requirements 
for admission in any department of natural science. The Society is divided into three 
divisions, Chemistrv, Phvsics, and Biologv, and students may enter from any ot these 

The organization has enjoved many interesting and helpful meetings during the 
present session, and has increased notably in size and importance on the campus. 
Next vear should show a continuation of this growth.

The Spirit ofthe^Mask and Wig Tlayers 

I am the Drama, the grand, divine, eternal drama. Life itself am I. With the aid 
of my mimetic art, Humanity sees itself reflected on the stage in all its many changing 
moods — grave and gay. 

"I am the Drama. With pitiless precision of the skillfull surgeon, 
I prove the souls of men, portraying each according to his measure, 
remorselessly holding the Mirror up to Nature. I deride Society's 
follies, castigate its vices, extol its virtues. 1 trade in every human 
emotion. I create laugh and tear." 
1 am the Drama. In me are assembled all the arts — Poetry, Literature, Oratory, 
Painting, Sculpture, Music, Dancing. In the spirit of Comedy, the glamour of Romance, 
the veiled figure of Tragedy, I am grim Realism itself. I visualize the historic past. 
I make live again the great of other days — Brutus, Caesar, Napoleon, Washington, 
Lee, Lincoln, Grant. In Shakespeare's mighty line I reveal Othello's wrath and Juliet's 

In stately precision they pass — the majestic Lear, the gentle Rosalind, the crafty 
Shylock, the sinister Gloster, the ardent Romeo, the melancholoy Dane, the ambitious 
Macbeth, the sportive Touchstone, the lovely Benedict, the vacillating Peer Gynt, 
the carping Pantaloons, the sophisticated Pierette. 

I am the Drama, the grand, divine, eternal drama — greatest of all teachers. All the 
world's my stage, all mankind my actors. My message is human experience. The wise 
will profit by it. I am the Drama. 

Of such is the SPIRIT of the MASK AND WIG PLAYERS.

The Southwestern J^ittle Symphony 

Although the Southwestern Little Symphony is but two years old, it 
has taken an important place among the musical organizations of the 

Since the date of its first rehearsal, it has grown in numbers until 
thirty-five are included in its membership. The ensemble is well balanced 
and includes nearly all symphonic instruments. 

The success of the orchestra may be accredited to the loyal spirit 
existing between the conductor, Ed Onstot, and the members. 

The orchestra wishes to thank Miss Vause, head of the Violin Depart- 
ment of the University, for her services as concertmeister.

The "Pirate "Baud 

The Pirate Band has made wonderful progress this year over what 
it has done during previous years. At the opening of the school year 
new uniforms were ordered for the band and a period of field drill was 
entered into, thus developing a band that was proclaimed by the Trini- 
tonian to be the "best college band in the state." 

Under the directorship of Mr. Edwin Walker the band is entered in 
the State Band Contest held in Waco May 3rd and 4th. This contest 
is made up of some fifty bands from all over the state, with thirteen 
classes for various types of bands. 

The Southwestern Universitv band entered in the Senior College class 
to compete against Southern Methodist University, Texas Christian 
University, Baylor University, Rice Institute, and any other members 
of the Southwestern Conference in this division. 

The band at present is made up of twentv-eight pieces and is well 
balanced in all sections.

The zJ%Cethod/st Student Federaton 

The Methodist Student Federation, which represents the interests of the religious 
activities of Southwestern University was organized in February 1923. In the summer 
of 1922, at the call of Rev. Glenn Flinn, a small group of college workers and friends 
from various parts of Texas met in Dallas to talk over the religious situation among 
the Methodist students of Texas, and to take such steps as were thought best to im- 
prove that situation. No feeling of alarm or pessimism was manifested in that group, 
it being recognized that many splendid agencies and elements were already operating 
in behalf of more than 13,000 students involved; yet the fact was frankly faced that 
conditions might be improved as far as the local institutions were concerned, and that 
as far as any effective union of the various groups went, there was an impressive de- 
ficiency. It was the judgment of this meeting that some sort of state-wide organization 
should be formed among the Methodist students of Texas for the more adequate pro- 
motion of religious objectives among them, and that a call should be issued for a con- 
ference of representative students from all the Methodist, state, and private schools 
of Texas to consider the promotion of such an organization. That call was issued and 
on February 2, 1923, more than one hundred students from twenty-two schools met at 
Georgetown, and the Texas Methodist Student Federation was organized. Since that 
time four successful conferences have been held. At the last conference Southwestern 
was honored by the selection of two officers from her student body; Bruce Palmer, 
president; and Buster Powell, treasurer. Rev. Glenn Flinn, executive secretary of 
Southwestern, is a member of the State Executive Board. 

The Federation is not an attempt to present a new organization in addition to the 
organizations already existing and operating, but to present a method of unifying and 
vitalizing the work already being attempted by these existing organizations, which 
are units forming the local Federation. The unit organizations include Y.M.C.A., 
Y.W.C.A., Epworth League, Sunday School, Volunteer Band, and Ministerial Associa- 
tion, together forming the membership of the Federation. The administration of the 
affairs of the Federation centers in a council which for the year 1925-26 was composed 
of the following representatives: Frank Mood, Y.M.C.A.; Christine Walker, Y.W.C.A.; 
Weldon Teague, Ministerial Association; Mary Hemphill, Volunteer Band; Harold 
Graves, Epworth League; J. B. Entriken, Sunday School; Gladys Shook, student 
secretary; Rev. J. T. Ren fro, pastor; Rev. Glenn Flinn, executive secretary; Prof. F. 
C. A. Lehmberg, board of stewards; Prof. G. A. Hester, faculty. The officers of the 
federation were Weldon Teague, president; P. K. Durrett, first vice-president; Tom 
Perrin, second vice-president; Mary Nash Buttery, third vice-president;Oscar Thurston, 
fourth vice-president; Gladys Shook, secretary-treasurer. 

The year 1925-26 witnessed the most successful demonstration in Southwestern. 
Among other accomplishments a $1500 budget was pledged, the most of which was 
paid; four mission study classes were conducted during the Winter term, with gratify- 
ing results; twelve delegates attended the fourth annual conference of the Texas Metho- 
dist Student Federation; and deputations held services at a number of neighboring 
towns. It is hoped that in the future the Federation will continue to accomplish the 
things it has undertaken to do at Southwestern and that much good will be effected 
through its efforts.

under trying conditions, the members of the cabinet have tried to make effective on 
the campus Jesus' law of love, in all of the student activities. 

Many things are being planned for the students next vear, and the organization 
will have many opportunities to help the girls in their campus life. The Y.W. will feel 
that its work has not been in vain, if it can lead some student to a deeper realization 
of what Christian service reallv means to one's life.

The ^hQnisterial Association 


W. B. Teague Fall Term 

Edwin R. Walker Winter Term 

Erxest Roper Spring Term 

The Ministerial Association is an organization for the student ministers upon the 
campus. It is a band of men looking forward to a common service to the church and 
to humanity, and with these ideas in mind the activities of the association are so guided 
as to best guide the preparation of these men for their particular service. 

There are two meetings held each week, and in these meetings men of experience 
and education are asked to come and talk; very often these men are faculty members

^Blue I\ey Fraternity 

The national organization of Blue Key has been called the "College Man's Rotary." 
Although the chapter at Southwestern is relatively new, it is attempting to fulfill this 
reputation. As outlined in its statement of purpose, the organization is endeavoring to 
further the best interests of Southwestern by acting as a sort of medium between the 
administration and student opinion, and to establish a spirit of fraternalism among all 

The national organization, of which the local chapter has recently become a part, 
was originally planned to include only outstanding men of various campuses. The 
organizers of the Society at Southwestern, however, felt that there was a large part 
which could be played by the co-eds of the campus, and accordingly they were admitted 
to membership. 

The fraternity meets twice each month in a luncheon session, at which times va- 
rious questions of interest to students are discussed and plans of action are mapped out.

Southivestem Scholarship Society 

The objects of the Scholarship Society are the stimulation, promotion, and recog- 
nition of scholarship and the elements of character which make scholarship effective 
tor good. The colors of the Society are emerald green, signifying victory, and sapphire 
blue, signifying truth. The badge is a shield bearing a lamp, and is' worn only by mem- 
bers of the societv. 

Membership is granted to those students who make an average of ninety over 
eighteen majors of work or an average of eighty-seven over twentv-seven majors of 
work. In addition to high scholarship, good reputation and character are essential 
qualifications for membership. 

At Commencement a prize is presented by the society to the Freshman who has 
made the highest scholastic average during the year. Each year the society is addressed 
by a distinguished scholar who deals wrth matters relating to high scholarship and 
advancement of knowledge. On February twenty-second of this vear, the state con- 
vention of Scholarship Societies of Texas was held at Southwestern. At that time this 
chapter was the host to twenty-five societies representing various colleges from many 
sections of the state.

During its second year of existence the Alpha Chapter ot Pi Gamma Mu Social 
Science Society, has done much toward the advancement of Social Science in South- 
western University. It has been instrumental in securing good speakers as well as known 
authorities in their lines to address the society. All members feel that they have derived 
much good from the society. 

The requirements for entrance are not too high, but are sufficiently high to enable 
only such students as are especially interested in Social Science to gain entrance. Only 
seniors and faculty members are eligible for membership and their major interest 
must be in the Social Sciences. 

Pi Gamma Mu is looking forward to a great year next year.

purpose the maintenance of harmony and a spirit of co-

The Council this year, has, in addition to its regular duties, established a 
trophy room, which has been absent from our campus since the destruction by 
fire of the gymnasium several years ago. The cases of the trophy room are already 
rilling rapidly, and if the Pirates bring home a few more championships, we will 
have to build a special building to take care of this new enterprise. 

The Council this year consists of R. W. Tinslev, J. C. Godbey, E. H. Herford, 
and Carl Reynolds.

Here is the man who gave us a championship in both football 
and basketball his first year as coach. He came to us after suc-

Aggies during a period of three years. 

He is a good sportsman, heady coach, and has a pleasing 
personality to cap his good qualities. He is loved and respected 
by Slime and Senior, scrub or Varsity men, and delivers the

Tf/e Tell J^eaders 

The story of Southwestern 's wonderful achievements in the realms of Athletic con- 
tests during the present year would not be complete without recognition of the services 
rendered by the Yell Leaders. 

Sam Crenshaw and Jerry Stevens, both new men on the job this year, proved their 
ability to keep the Pirate spirit going through every contest. The rooting sections 
were constantly alive, and it is to these men that the credit is due. They also supervised 
the activities of the Pep Squad, and through their work, together with the cooperation 
of the pep squad members, that organization contributed greatly toward the success of 
the T. I. A. A. championship football team. 

The Pep Squad, led by the Yell leaders, were the center of the rooters section at 
the Temple game, and between halves, this squad of men and women, together with 
the Southwestern band, paraded the field and presented various stunts which added 
much to the success of the Temple trip and the Austin College game. 


The Sou'wester ~J92b 

T. I. zA. ^_A . (Jiampions 

We set out to win the T. I. A. A. championship, and also the 
laurels for the Texas Conference, and we did it. There is nothing 
more to be said. Howard Payne threatened to defeat us, but 
got no nearer than a tie. We owe thanks to Howard Payne, 
however, for defeating Simmons University on Turkey Day, for 
by our defeat of San Marcos on the same day, our claims were 
undisputed and our position secure. 

Coach Edens is a wonderful coach, the Pirate team is a won- 
derful team, and the school whose colors they wear is a won- 
derful school. 

This is the first time in the history of Texas intercollegiate 
athletics that one school was able to win two championships 
in the same sport in the same year. Let us present to vou, the 
greatest football team Southwestern has ever produced. 

The Sou'wester ~]92b 

Bruce Duncan, Captain, Guard 

Llano, Weight I Sc 

Bruce was one of the best generals for a Pirate team ever seen on Snyder Field, and a good 
player to match his generalship. His judgment in sizing up plays, and in sifting the opponents' 
defensive caused him to be placed on the second All-Texas and All-T.I.A.A. teams. 

Senior, tour years 

Tom Perrin, End 

Georgetown, Weight 170 

Tom was the most consistent end many of us have ever seen. He was fast, tackled hard, 
and played the game squarely. When the ball was passed to him in crucial moments his arms 
formed a natural basket. Gains around his end were few. He was placed on the second All- 
T.I.A.A. team three vears in succession. 

Junior, two years 

Major Hardin, End 

Georgetown, Weight 168 

Maj was like a western cow pony, unlimited stamina and endurance, and willing to tight 
until he dropped. He injured a knee late in the season, but because of his stellar playing 
earlier in the season his right to a letter was unquestioned. 


The Sou'wester ~J92b 

minor, two vears 

Carl Reynolds, Captain-elect, Tackle 

Del Rio, Weight 195 

Carl was one of the greatest tackles seen in Texas athletics this year, having been chosen 
on the first teams of both the T.I. A. A. and the All-Texas team. Hard hitting, fast, and sure 
tackling characterized his playing throughout the season. 


ashman, one year 

Eugene Jackson, Haljback 

Luling, Weight 160 

Gene was the individual star of the St. Edwards game. He is the prettiest broken field run- 
ner ever seen on a Corsair gridiron for many seasons. He runs with his knees high up, feet far 
apart, and uses the stiff arm to perfection. He should figure largely in 1027 football. 

Freshman, one year 

Wesley Blackburn, Quarter 

Rockdale, Weight 150 

Blackie assumed the role of regular quarter and could general the team to perfection. Kick- 
ing from fifty to seventy yard punts was his specialty, and he could drop kick with ease from 
the forty yard line. He was called the best kicker in the entire state. 

If I 


%e Sou'wester ~J92b 

Senior, two years 

Grady Reynolds, Guard 

Del Rio, Weight 170 

Grady was a bulwark in the Pirate line. Like his little brother he was a star in all the games 
he played. He was in the starting line-up of nearly all the games, and his side of the line was 

Senior, three years 

M. K. Bachtel, Guard 

Mishawaka, Ind., Weight 190 

Reef Trust was a tower of strength in the Pirate line. He was good, he was heavy, and he 
had the fighting spirit always with him. He came all the way from Indiana to introduce north- 
ern methods into southern football, and those methods never failed. 

Freshman, one year 

Don Johns, Center 

Georgetown, Weight 16s 

Don was a center with a head, and he knew how to use it in times of stress. On defensive 
playing he had his place in the line plugged, and was the keystone of the machine on offensive 
playing. His finger signals were never figured out by his opponents. 

%e Sou'wester ~]92b 

Senior, tour 

Duane Mateer, Halfback 

Wichita, Kan., Weight 175 

Rabbit has been his nickname for four years, and he was as fast this season as ever before. 
He could also pass to perfection and kick well when called on. He has the weight for a good 
line plunger and was always there with his best. 

Senior, two years 

D. S. Dickson, Halfback 

Navasota, W 7 eight 135 

Dick was a little light in weight, but heavy with his fighting ability. He proved a thorn in 
the side of his opponents because of his fleetness. He could whip around the enemy's wings 
for long gains when called upon to do so. 

Freshman, one year 

M. L. Hodges, Guard 

Marlin, Weight 155 

Hodge was the "freshman full o' fight." Although not a regular in the starting line-ups he 
played in such a manner as to show that he had his right to membership on the Championship 
team. Gains over his position were few. 


%e §ou'wester ~]92b 


Senior, two years 

John Barcus, Quarterback 

Corsicana, Weight [40 

John played relief quarter, his lightness being a handicap for the regular berth. He was a 
track man, and could skirt the ends for gains at regular intervals. He played safety man and 
ran the ball back on every kick of the opponents. 

Freshman, one vear 

1.. D. Livingston, End 

Lawton, Okla., Weight 175 

Livy is a big man, and he played the end position well. He stands over six feet, and used 
his brawn to good advantage at all times. He came to us after being an all round athlete with 
the North Texas Aggies, and it proved our gain and their loss. 

Sophomore, two years 

Leroy Weeks, Fullback 

Georgetown, Weight 170 

Leroy was the best fullback of the season. He had the weight, the nerve, and the endurance 
to hit the line for gains, and he always did just that. He proved good at kicking and passing 
to any desired distance, and was also a pretty broken field runner. 

%e Sou'wester -J92& 

Junior, one year Robert Leissner, Fullback Yorktown, Weight 180 

Rabbi hit the line as hard as any man on the team. His specialty was to leap some few feet 
after he was tackled, or else hurdle the line. He had his early training in the Texas Shorthorn 

Senior, one ver 

D. Q. Adams, Fullback 

New Braunfels, Weight 175 

Quince could and did hit the line like a battering ram against a piece of paper. He could 
pass neatly and occasionally would punt just to keep in practice. A good athlete. 

Sophomore, one year 

Lee Lemberg, Center 

Crockett, Weight 165 

Lee was the regular center and shone brightly on defensive playing. Intercepting passes was 
his specialty and any in his territory were either intercepted or grounded, as he saw fit. 

Junior, one year 

Harold Terry, Gn 

Houston, Weight 18? 

Terry came to us from Lon Morris and like our other athletes from that school he made 
good from the start. He was the best relief guard on the powerful Pirate machine this year.

"Tteyiezv of the Season 

This is the first year of the existence of the Texas Conference, and the first cham- 
pionship laurels were handed to Southwestern. The entire Pirate quintet of this season 
was made up of seasoned and experienced players. Carl Reynolds was the outstanding 
star on all occasions, with Adams always crowding him for honors. 

The Pirates met all the strong teams in the T. 1. A. A. and the Texas Conference. 
They played series with some of the Southwestern conference teams and whether they 
won or lost, the game was always played fairly. The spirit inculcated into the team 
by Lefty was "play the thing fair — win or lose." In most of the encounters, they 
emerged victorious, but sometimes the dregs of defeat were tasted, sweetened by the 
fact that they had done their best and had played clean ball. 

\t the Texas Conference Tournament in Brownwood, they swept everything before 
them and emerged the undisputed, clean-playing victors. Adams was high point man 
in the tournament, despite the handicap of weak eyes. Carl Reynolds, assisted by 
Blackburn, guarded in such a manner that, while the forwards were marking up the 
counters, the enemies could not retaliate. The other men, notably Grady Reynolds 
and Mateer, performed as only real champions can, and carried the glory on their 
shoulders as well as did the others.

The T. I.^A.iA.tMeet 

The meet was held on Snyder Field on May 8, 192;. 
The twelve schools representing the Texas Intercollegiate 
Athletic Association sent their representatives to fight for 
the championship which was won the year before by South- 
western. History alwavs repeats itself and once more the 
eight men wearing the Pirate colors marched off victorious. 

In the meet four records were broken, three of which 
were broken by Southwestern men. They were: the jave- 
lin throw, won by Duane Mateer; the high jump, won bv 
Fred Burgin; and the mile relay, in which we tied Denton 
Normal for first. Our relay team was composed of Skip- 
worth, Burgin, Gusman, and Kidd. 

Owing to the untiring work of Dr. J. C. Godbey, assisted 
by Manager Mavhew and his staff of assistants, the track 
was in perfect condition in spite of the prolonged drouth. 
The track being in this state, and the competition being 
strong, the meet was one of the fastest ever witnessed in 
the T. T. A. A.

Coach Young came to us after successfully coaching in 
Temple High school. He is an old Southwestern man, 
having won his letters in baseball here in T916, '17, '18, 
and '19. 

His team was highly successful the entire season, taking 
all things into consideration. Games were played with all 
classes of baseball clubs, and the games won far out- 
numbered the games lost. 

The So^^Ster^lW^^^^^m 


To sav nothing about Carl and his playing ability would be a slight 
to him, and to try to describe them would be impossible. He is the 
fifth four letter man in Southwestern 's fiftv-three years of existence, 
and the first one to achieve that honor in his first year here. 

He is captain-elect ot next year's gridiron squad, and was captain of 
this year's quintet. 

Carl is a clean player, hard fighter, and popular student, both with 
the student body and with the faculty.

The Qutlass 

S T A F F 

Editor-in-Chief The Choker 

Associate Editor Dr. Barcus 

Printer's Devil Dr. Gray 

Business Manager Mr. Williams 

General Flunky Dr. Tinsley 


All good papers have editorials. A poor beginning makes a good ending, so says 
Dr. Barcus. Therefore, The Cutlass must start with an editorial written by its degen- 
erate editor. In the first place this editorial is to serve two functions, to give a reason 
for writing the section of this book, and to get some of the editor's wind off his chest. 

I am writing this because George Mood did not have time to do so and because 
he was afraid to. It is being written with but one thought in that section of the anatomy 
which generally serves as a hat rack and that is to have some fun at the expense of 
everyone save myself, by pointing out the peculiarities, habits, and conduct of certain 
groups and individuals upon our campus, who rate themselves higher than do their 

The second reason for writing this is to let some people know that a certain prophecy 
in the Bible is fulfilled, and that is "Be sure your sins will find you out." Now that I 
have taken my text I shall proceed: (never to come back to it, since it is divided into 
three parts: first, I take my text; second, I leave my text; third, I leave it for good.) 


This bunch of moral, social, and mental degenerates has moved to the country. 
Why, we do not know unless it is because they hate to litter up the avenue with their 
pledge pins which they throw out to every athlete that happens to pass by their row 
of stalls. 


Ike $ou'wefter ~]92t> 

They did have three fairly good men in the chapter, two of these being initiates 
and the other a pledge, but when Mr. Pret Stanford broke his pledge with the declara- 
tion, "I won't stay in any $$$$&&&& &&&&. . . . 

fraternity, when I can't play poker, and drink in its house when I want to." Well, the 
other two, Mr. Frieze and Mr. Dickson severed their relations with the bunch also. 
I don't blame them, do you? So with these three excellent men gone it has been rather 
a hard pull for the KA's, and it makes it still harder for the Choker to characterize 
them. There is one redeeming feature of this chapter however, and that is that Wallace 
Red with the help of a young lady got his degree at the end of his seventh year and is 
not back again. The other redeeming feature is that they have established a nursery 
in the chapter and initiated John Kidd, we understand that Tom Buckingham is his 
mother for the time being, although he has been trying to get rid of the job. 

There is one fact concerning the KA's that is not generally known, and that is 
that there has been only one member to get his degree by himself in four years and 
even he was Sea bones Wade, the pride of their hearts. 

Dean Wunder, so we understand, has a representative in each of the four frater- 
nities that keep him posted on the happenings within their brotherhoods. He also would 
like very much to get a certain popular faculty member to tell him of the seven men 
he has put to bed drunk. 

Prof. Guthrie once had a pet dog: it got pickled. Now he has a pet registrar 

(it won't do to tell) ??? 

Dr. Howard has four promising young daughters, but we wonder what he will do 
with the plans he had for his son. 

Prof. Gray is very much in need of some one to do his cussing for him while he 
plays golf. 

%e Sou'wester ~]92b 


Under this title may be listed the politicians, jelly beans, faculty members, and 
those who fool the faculty members for grades. For the past ten years this bunch has 
been pledging money in order to get their stately mansion painted and paid for. The 
man who lives just to the west of this defunct group is often quoted as saying that he 
lives between H — - and the railroad track. This may be true, but if it is I pity poor 
Satan trying to care for all of them at once, although they do tend to his business splen- 
didly. The motto of this group is "Love the Zetas," but they have a hard time making 
Dick Hardin comply with their motto. 

The Choker has but one wish regards this group and that is that Miss "Kuyk" 
might walk in some night when all the lady friends are over for their weekly visit. 

It was indeed interesting to note the number of members of this organization who 
took Political Science 85 during the Fall term and the way "Lippy" Vineyard made 
a distinction in the course. This reference of course is made without the slightest re- 
flection upon the instructor in this course. However, a great number of this group 
have also made Mask & Wig and other things, oh, well, we are just jealous that's 
all, knowing perfectly well that they made it upon a sheer display of ability. 

We understand that Raymond Moses likes to write letters at the request of Pan 
Hellenic. We also understand that this gentleman is quite depressed over the fact that 
the students did not like him well enough to re-elect him to the office sought so diligently. 

Burdick — I would like to call him Prof, but he resents that, he resents everything 
in fact that connects him in anyway with the faculty — well, Fll call him a gentleman, 
which is defined by the boys to mean 17 degrees below something, Fve forgotten just 
what. This man is a great friend of his fellow workers in the Physics department, as 
well as some others I might mention. 

Mr. Went/., the professor of the speech arts will appear before the student body 
on some near date, in a personal dramatization of "Professor How Could You?" 


The Sou'wester ~J92b 


This hunch of rough necks still lives in the same barn that it used to. This is a very 
remarkable fact, for we would have thot that the Sheriff would have found out where 
some of them live before this time. George Mood and Bruce Palmer are the two boys 
who keep this chapter from getting kicked out of school for, you see, both of them are 
on the honor council and we understand serve certain members of the frat quite well 
in that capacity. 

Palmer is the man of experience with the women, for he can get a girl, pin her in 
two months, have it off in as many weeks, and back on again in schedule time. Some 
work we calls it. 

It has been circulated around the campus that this chapter will have a slogan for 
rushing season next year, "Join the Phis and get married." We pity the subjects for 
the experiment among the fair sex, especially the two who have already tried it. 

We only wonder what this chapter is doing to keep quiet the escapades of Johnnie 
and Archie in Austin and other neighboring towns. 

There is no other frat on the campus that has stooped to the thing this one has 
done and that is to let a man break a pledge and then beg him until he accepts another 

This group has in it a number of politicians also, of course Bell nor Fox either 
would stoop to dirty politics, but just the same we hear things. 

We understand that Miss Velma Tisdale is waiting for Mr. Burdick. 
to walk down the street with her. 

Dr. and Mrs. Vaden were the honor guests at the bridge party given at Young's 
dairy, Sterilized milk was served with Pure dream. 

Miss Kuvkendall, Mrs. McKennon, Mrs. Ferguson, and Mrs. Chambers are beiiu 
coached by Miss Bowles for the faculty relay team. 

Dr. Godbey is quite an honest gentleman, and an extra good golf player, but you 
had better not let him keep his own score. 

%e Sou'wester -J 92 & 



These boys claim nothing, do nothing, have nothing, and are nothing to speak of, 
save such unmentionables as we decline to repeat since the material might be used by 
the Honor Council. 

There are several scholars among the bunch such as Polly, and a few other birds. 
This in fact is fast growing to be a supplement to the scholarship society, save those 
who are athletically inclined and this takes in ninety per cent of the chapter. 

The path for these boys has been all roses, with but one thorn in it and that is the 
fact that they have been unsuccessful in making Weeks accept a bid, although he did 
his best and we commend him for it, for perseverance is a virtue. 

They also include as one of them a really great musician, man of no mean ability 
and a really great man, Army. He has but one fault and that is practiced only on week 
ends m a city some thirty miles distant. 

Bobby Behrns, and Edwin Dannelly started the school year off with a whirl, even 
if it was in the head. 


This group of girls is relieved of a great weight on its chest since the close of the 
winter term for Mary Germany now has her degree. But even with this problem gotten 
off there still remains the fact that they have to look to the girls whom the Zetas will 
not take for rushing material. 

Traylor Sells says that even though Sulphur Springs does grow lilies it grows the 
more beautiful daisies. 

We wonder why Bob Lily's hurried exit last fall??????? 

Someone has said that it is no wonder that we don't get much to eat at the cafeteria, 
when Mrs. Ray doesn't need anything! 

The Sou'wester ~]92b 

They are of so little importance we decline to mention them. 

I would hate to see the contractor for the Woman's Building after Miss "Kuvk" 
gets thru bossing him, I'll bet she puts in some good training that will help out his 
wife. Yes Miss "Kuyk" is a very capable woman for her position, she manages her 
own and everyone else's business. 

There is a time for all things — now is the time to take a crack at everybody, so it 
falls Dr. Moses turn — if you don't know who I mean he is the man that passes out the 
Pluto and Asprin — in fact his Ford is now named "Pluto — Passin' thru." 

The choral club took a trip; Slime Perry went along, so did Annie Edward. During 
each performance Perry wore Annie Edward's pin. The choral club returned. John 
Barcus greeted Perry with a "Glad to see you in the family." Will you accept him 
Zetas ? 

On this same Glee Club trip Tom Buckingham paid $7.30 to the Chambers. 

When nominations were read to the student body Slim Giddings withdrew his name. 
I don't blame him — humiliation at the polls is terrible. The only question is why 
didn't some others have as much sense? 



Motto: Kappa Sigma and a good time 
Flower: Sunflower 

The greatest problem with this bunch is trying to make Misses Chapman and 
Cavton live up to their motto. This flip flop flapping bunch of flappers have another 
pain in the fact that they have pledged the town of Beaumont and can't get rid of it 
or teach it anything about flipping tor it already outflops the flippers and have renamed 
their town Flippersville. 

"Chick" Logan says that he wishes that these girls would make the boys that bring 
them to his house for church on Sunday nights bring in their own wood. 


This is the most pathetic group on our campus, for they are the emblems of the 
saddest thing in the history of the human race. They are the remnants to tell the story 
of a faded glory. They are the hasbeens. They once were, but are no more. The leaders 
are professional gripers. They start to do things; they fail. Their freshmen cannot make 
their averages. Liz Jones cannot keep her pin on. Christine Walker lost hers and as a 
result a bov went to the hospital the next day. Mary Nash Buttery lost all chances of 
ever losing hers. Mary Patterson hasn't one and we don't know where it is. One of 
their pledges married during Christmas. Jewel Ozment is just one among the long 
list. They all were but are no more. They would like to be but can't. Faded memories 
of days in the dim past is their name and condition. 

Paschal Buckner makes the statement that he was offered a Pi Kappa Alpha bid 

but triumphantly declined it.

Velma Biggs refuses, on April to, for the ten thousandth time, to bob her hair. 

Richard Hardin, famed Kappa Sigma, simply cannot be loyal to the traditions of 
Keepa Swig. He still loves the Tri Delts. 

Jerry Stevens leads the crew. As soon as the thermometer rises to fifty or above 
he puts on a coat. But let it freeze and snow, and Jerry's sleeves go up to stay. 

Archie Walker refuses to fall in love. 

P. S. That pin fell again about three weeks ago. 

Obie mocks the authority of the honor council and demands that since she is free 
white, twentv-one and unmarried, she will sleep in the patio if she so desires; regardless 
of where Johnnie Marie sleeps. 

John Harper refuses to conform to the universitv regulations and cuts chapel with 
the result that 1756 demerits are assessed against him. 

Rudolph Vaughan and Starkey Duncan refuse to live up to the tenets established 
by an organization of long standing on the campus. Both of these promising students 
have proven the oft repeated phrase that they "all flop sooner or later — provided 
the chance is given them." Anyway, the Would-be-but-cant 's don't seem to be shedding 
any tears over the loss. 

Pi Kappa Alpha just can't get the idea out of their head that they neither need nor 
want a house-mother. 

Kappa Sigma doesn't want a house mother either, but for entirely different reasons. 
Their's is solely pecuniary. They can't afford to remodel the house to accommodate 
her. But the Cutlass knows as well as they do, that they plan to remodel that house 
next summer anyway. What's wrong now! 

JS^esU r^]^^^ ^^^^ 

Freshman Snipes and worse than Freshman French insist that it is their inalienable 
right to cut ahead of the entire University at the cafeteria, by passing the whole line 
up, and marching on in. I suppose their feeble constitutions would not stand a wait in 

Edwin Walker and Charlie Morgan insist that they must quit the single life and 
prove that two can live as cheaply as one. 

Late Bulletin: Both have surrendered, and beg to announce that it's a big lie. 

Dr. Barcus refuses to use any other than an Arkansas crush in his hat. 

Birch Downman must have his scotch, even though he has to announce to the 
world that a Freshman, instead of the curbing, was responsible for the cut he got 
above the eye. The all-seeing eye of the Cutlass, however, knows too much to believe 
that any Freshman could get away with a lick like that. Anyway, scotch does make 
the curbing bounce around considerably. 

I wonder if the parties pulled at the Sig house every week-end would go under the 
classification of House-warmings. 

I guess it's all for the best, but for the life of me, I can't understand whv Davidson 
alwavs manages to march ahead of the line with Miss Kuvk while all other faculty 
members have to stand in line just like the rest of us poor dumb cattle. Reckon there's 
any reason, or is it just the doings of Fate? 

Mary Nash Buttery certainly has changed. There was a time when she didn't 
seem to know there was such a thing as weather. You ought to see her prick up her 
ears and listen now when somebody savs that further rain will ruin the crops. That 
ranch is a miracle. 

Miss Kuyk says she hates pineapple bobs. So Fannie Florence makes a run for the 
barber shop and gets one. Now that it's all over, we beg to opine that Miss Kuyk 
was right.

This Charley certainly is a cosmopolitan character! It has been sug- 
gested that he is: Rudolph Vaughan, Curtis Nunn, Elizabeth Little, 
Starkey Duncan, Roland Egger, Thomas Bishop, George Mood, Pascal 
Buckner, Walter Bell, Ed Onstot, David Searls, Johnnie Marie Brooks, 
and 420 others. 

The Cutlass thinks he knows still another, who is the real Charley, 
but for fear he may disgrace the name of Charley, he won't disclose his 
hunch at this time. Anyway, this Charley has a wonderful personality. 
His philosophy is certainly good, and we would have only one objection 
to make — he changes his philosophy entirely' too often. 

George Mood promised me he'd run a picture of Charley on the staff 
page of the weekly Headache, but later he announced that none of his 
cartoonists could get the right twist to the moustache, so he had to leave 
Charley out. 

Judging from the familv Charley presented at Chapel, I think he 
comes from the woods of Arkansas. Do you think of any of these students 
who are from Arkansas. Now don't get alarmed. Christine and Archie 
may look like they're from Arkansas, but they both come from the 
Texas side of Texarkana. 

It has been said that if the weekly letter to Mrs. Charley hadn't been 
in the paper, there would have been nothing worth reading. This makes 
it kinder hard on Ed, but he's had peaches and cream for a long time 
anyway. So will let it go for what it's worth. Anyway, Charley has con- 
tributed much to the paper, whether he made the paper each week or 
not. Thanks, try again!

Somebody said it couldn 7 be done, 

But he with a chuckle replied 

That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one 

IT ho wouldn't say so till he'd tried. 

So he buckled right in with a bit of a grin 

On his face. If he worried, he hid it. 

He started to sing as he tackled the thing 

That couldn't be done, and he did it. 

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that, 

.it least no one has ever done it:" 

But he took off his coat and he took off his hat, 

.hid the first thing we knew he'd begun it. 

With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, 

Without a doubt or quiddii, 

He started to sing as he tackled the thing 

That couldn't be done, and he did it. 

There arc thousands to tell you it cannot be done, 

There are thousands to prophesy failure; 

There are thousands to point out to you one by one 

The dangers that wait to assail you.
